Creating a connected community in a digital way
I Love Thorndale has doubled down on our support for local businesses, while also providing opportunities for local residents to connect, through our Local Skills Academy initiative. The Local Skills Academy will see local business owners facilitate sessions teaching skills that relate to their business expertise, and hopefully this will lead to more awareness that will grow their customer base.
A different guest will be featured each week and will share their expertise and interact with the participants through Zoom.
Date: every Wednesday, starting January 20, 2021
Time: 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Location: Zoom - click here to join
Meeting ID: 961 4630 9609 (no password)
No registration required.
Recordings will be posted at the bottom of this page and on our YouTube page.

Your support for local businesses can be as simple as participating in these session.
